UP: 20 killed, nearly 100 injured in boiler blast at NTPC unit in Raebareli
 
At least 20 people were killed and scores sustained injuries after a boiler unit of the NTPC exploded in Uttar Pradesh's Raebareli district on Wednesday evening. The death toll is likely to increase. Prime Minister Narendra Modi said he was "deeply pained" by the incident.

The NTPC initiated a probe to ascertain the reasons behind the blast, while Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath announced Rs 2 lakh compensation for the families of those killed and Rs 50,000 for the grievously injured, officials said. "Twenty deaths have been confirmed by the district administration. Twenty-two people with severe burns have been referred to Lucknow. Another 15 are admitted to a Rae Bareli hospital," UP's ADG (Law and Order) Anand Kumar said. Principal Secretary (Home) Arvind Kumar said that 90-100 people were injured in the blast.

In a statement, the National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC) said that at unit number six of its Unchahar plant, there was a sudden abnormal sound at 20-meter elevation around 3:30 in the afternoon. There was an opening in corner number two from which hot flue gases and steam "escaped" affecting the people working around the area, the central public sector undertaking said.

It added that around 80 people were rushed to NTPC hospital, most of whom were discharged after first-aid.
The 1,550-MW plant supplies electricity to nine states, according to officials, and employs around 870 people.
